easy programming languages...

i need to learn an easy as hell programming language. it needs to be learned fast and be simple kinda like HTML but for computer programming and not web pages. i have already learned HTML4 and a bit of CSS2 for web design but i want to make computer programs. can anyone tell me of a super simple programming language that i can start off with?

quickBASIC is a little old,

quickBASIC is a little old, but its easy. also, visual basic is pretty good if you get VB6. so is python.

But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

You kidding?

I know HTML, PHP, Batch, etc. and I still don't have a clue how it works.

It's definitely the easiest

It's definitely the easiest useful programming language I know. (Logo is easier)
And the first one I learned (actually it was pascal, but it doesn't matter regarding easy of learning).
And it's generally an extended pascal, which was designed mostly for educational purposes.

Actually,

IMO it's easier to understand, but not easy to write.

I gotta toss my vote in for

I gotta toss my vote in for AutoIt3. It's syntax is easy like AutoHotKey, but has much more functionality and user defined functions. It's my preference for most bang for your buck. Plus I'm no slouch if you've got questions Wink

Oh, and don't mind everyone bringing up it's not open source. Only AHK and FreeBASIC are OSS as far as the langs I know of (I'm sure there are more). But just cause it's not OSS is no reason not to look into it.

You're very wrong, most of

You're very wrong, most of popular languages have open source compilers or interpreters. Or at least some that are not 100% compliant with the standard (like Delphi vs. Lazarus).
